The Local Cellular Phone Preemption Act was adopted by ALEC's Telecommunications and Information Technology Task Force at the Annual Meeting on August 9, 2002, approved by the the full ALEC Board of Directors in September, 2002. ALEC has attempted to distance itself from this piece of legislation after the launch of ALECexposed.org in 2011, but it has done nothing to get it repealed in the states where it previously pushed for it to be made into law.
